    GOG is basically the perfect middle ground for digital and physical. You store the games on a drive that doesn't fail or die due to disc rot, and you still own them. The only cons are that you don't get a cool plastic case, but ahh it's better than nothing. I wish steam was more like GoG. IGG games exists though so there's that, but i want to support the devs ^_^

    If the government wants businesses to close then they need to stop landlords from collecting or foot the bill. Mob mentality is the worst.

    Well, with that kind of mentality you might want to check each hardware parts of the computer you're using. Maybe there'd be a tracking device somewhere you know, and since you can't trust anyone you'd have to check yourself.
    Check every piece of software you installed, check the source code, disassemble every closed sourced program, maybe some of them contain spyware and you can't know.
    Also when you go buy food, assuming you're not cultivating it yourself, maybe check if each and every apple is disease free, some untrustworthy government could be hiding an outbreak too.
    This goes on and on and the ultimate answer will be: go isolate yourself in a deserted island when you can pray your non existing god all day long.

    So we're all sheep because oh god do we dare have some semblance of trust in our fellows humans, what's the big deal.
    What exactly do you think Italy is? A second North Korea? They don't have internet? They wouldn't be already telling the world all around if misinformation was being spread? Do you not know anyone in Italy, France, Spain that can relate to what's going on? Is everyone on Twitter lying to? Is the whole world lying to you? Are we in the matrix? ARE WE REAAAAAL ARGGG

    There, go do that, 100% god approved

    But GameStop still has to pay the lease for the space? How is that okay?

    The government can't just do whatever it wants.

    You are making an exageration in order not to listen to what I am saying. And what God has to do with anything? You did not understand anything of what I was saying, nothing at all. My reference to God, is because for those type of things you need faith, and it is understood, because those are things you cannot see, etc. But for the things of "this world" you cannot ask me to have faith, I am sorry, I do not have faith in my fellow human beings.

    You show me this strange video at the end, so untastefull, I would never trust you for example. I have seen people destroying my country, burning buildings, because they are communist, or I don't know for what reason. I have seen the media defend lunatics and murderers, thieves, and the worst scum, in the name of comunism in my country.

    Would you believe there are some chinese men and woman who share my view? So I guess I still have some faith, my guts tell me those screams are REAL

    Of course they're exaggerations. The point is simple: We all -have- to rely on mankind knowledge to live, this is how we can even communicate right now. You don't trust anyone, but you use tools made by others everyday without questioning it, just like the rest of us. And you use them without understanding all out it by yourself.
    You cannot possibly know everything known to Man in every scientific field, therefore you need to rely on trust. Trust is not faith, they do not go together and any comparison is absurd. One is straight out fiction, one is very real, and you choose not to doubt the one that is very real.
    "You did not understand what I'm saying" is not a wildcard you can use to cover your own logic flaws.

    And in this case, you don't need visual proof. It's not a couple people calling out for thousands of deaths, it's entire nations. It's different media outlets, it's people who have nothing to gain and everything to lose in being confined. Who's making exaggerations by not trusting anything?

    This is not to say we should just accept everything being said to us as gospel, but the world isn't black and white as always. And because said government says one thing does not AUTOMATICALLY means you have the think the exact opposite, just because. I'm not sure if that's what makes you feel less a "sheep" than others, but you're your own sheep in some way as you become just as easy to manipulate.

    You can criticize the strategy some governments are taking to fight the virus, and it's fair, but denying its deaths is not only stupid, it's also an insult to the people who die, are confined, to the thousands of health care employees working their ass off everyday and having to choose who dies and who lives (that's in Italy) and THAT however is untasteful.

    Ah! Good old "I'm gonna find one article with people sharing my views and it's gonna be gospel because it fits my agenda".
    "But what do you do about the other articles, and other people telling you it's real?"
    "Nah it's fake, it comes from the governement".

    You're more American than an American, congrats :)

    Chinese people themselves are screaming right at you, that this is all fake! And I saw this video just a few moments ago, I know when I am being lied to, I don't need to ask you. And I also know these people are real, call it faith:

    "know" and "faith" don't go together, it's once again, absurd.

    I'm sure you're already figured out a very good reason for the Chinese government to first try to hide this disease and then publicly communicate about it and admit their failure. I'm sure it puts them in a much better spot.
    I'm sure the death of Li Wenliang, that was reported by these awful, liars of western media outlets was fake too, and people in China were just complaining about a non existent crisis at the time.
    But you probably have your "gut feelings" explaining that better. Why government would put the whole economy of their country in jeopardy for a lie, why would they make their people so unhappy for a lie, what would they have to gain over this? Eh. Doesn't matter. Gut feeling is they lied, everyone lied! Faith wins over facts.

    You know what, "believe" what you want. Keep finding the few videos within the many that will fit your agenda if you so wish. The people in the street always know better than experts after all.

    Gotta say, thank you, I think I finally understand why France has made a law against Holocaust denials.
